More Music Then You Can Shake a Stick At

So, all this music I've been posting lately, put me in the mindset to go back and actually look through some of my old music posts. Strangely, I keep adding to my library, but not much has changed from a theme perspective. And a lot of the stuff I've mentioned here in the past 8-ish years still gets heavy rotation. As I went through, I also gave a new tag to all of the playlist entries. There's not a lot of them, but check out my "music in the key of life" tag if you want to see more. I never got around to uploading my 2009 year-end mix, which I might do and backdate. But I know there will be more mixes in the near future.

But, I came across this meme (from a 2005 post) and thought I'd revive it to show the difference. I'm putting both the 2005 answers and the 2010 answers so I can see the change. Unfortunately, this might not be the best 2005 to 2010 look, considering I was using my iPod the first time around, and I used my whole music library on my home computer for the most recent version. But, it's close.

Open iTunes/iPod or Windows Media Player to answer the following. Go to your library. Answer, no matter how embarrassing it is.
